Cops arrested two people Friday in thekilling of a New Jersey Institute of Technology student during a burglary at his fraternity house.
Nafee Cotman, 18, and Taquan Harris, 22, were taken into custody and charged with the murder of Joseph Micalizzi, 23, who was fatally shot early Monday.
Cops said Friday that Irvington resident Cotman was accompanied by 22-year-old Taquan Harris, of Newark, when they broke into the back door of Micalizzi’s frat house and shot him twice.
In addition to murder, both men face robbery, burglary and weapons charges.

Micalizzi was a mechanical engineering major at the time of his death and his good grades landed him on the dean’s list last fall.
He had been living in the Tau Kappa Epsilon house, which is situated across the street from the Rutgers-Newark campus — near where a student was murdered in a double shooting last month.
